July 06, 2016 - EPE / Elvis Express Radio
|There are two things everyone knows about August in Memphis: it’s going to be hot, and Elvis Week is coming.
This year’s Elvis Week will include more than 25 events all about Elvis Presley, culminating in the annual Candlelight Vigil Aug. 15 at 8:30 p.m.
Leading up to the climax of Elvis Week, events will include: the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, the Auction at Graceland and panel discussions with the musicians, costars and
friends of Elvis.
This year’s Auction at Graceland will include the Jan. 8, 1935, Elvis Presley Birth Record document from the delivering physician, Robert Hunt, estimated to sell between $80,000
and $100,000; the 1973-74 Elvis Presley-signed American Express Card known to be the finest Elvis credit card in existence, estimated at $40,000 to $60,000; and a pair of pants
Elvis wore in his second film, “Loving You,” in 1957, estimated at between $15,000 and $20,000.
The 10th year of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest will feature competitors from around the world as they compete in the Semifinal Round of the 2016 Ultimate Elvis Tribute
Artist Contest Aug. 11 at the Orpheum. The top 10 Elvis tribute artists will move on to the Final Round of the competition Aug. 13, also at the Orpheum, as the finalists compete for
